Bad Liebenwerda is a spa town in the Elbe-Elster district, in southwestern Brandenburg, Germany. It is situated on the river Schwarze Elster, 57 km northwest of Dresden, and 28 km east of Torgau.HistoryThe first written mention is from 1231 as Lievenwerde. The meaning of the name is Live, or Lieb for life or lovely, and -werde from werda meaning island, high place in water. The document of 1231 mentions an Otto of Ileburg, Vogt of Lievenwerde, and Plebanus Walterus, a priest. Liebenwerda has a moated castle with a keep known as the Lubwartturm. The first mention as Liebenwerda as a city is from 1304. Liebenwerda was part of the Electorate of Saxony and Kingdom of Saxony until 1815; as a result of the Congress of Vienna the area became a district in the Kingdom of Prussia. The town has had a health spa since 1905, and in 1925 the word Bad was prefixed to its name.DemographyCulture and architectureBad Liebenwerda is home of the Gothic church of St. Nikolai. The tower of the church was rebuilt at the end of the 19th century after lightning struck the tower and caused a fire. The Lubwartturm is the oldest building in town. The tower was built around 1207 as part of the moated castle. Next to this tower is the museum with an exhibition on the composer Carl Heinrich Graun and his brothers. Also is there an exhibition on Marionettes, other puppets and puppeteers of south-east Germany. Bad Liebenwerda has a beautiful little park.
